Your body cannot perform optimally or experience lasting pain relief if your musculoskeletal system—your bones, muscles, cartilage, ligaments and joints—is compromised. For certain conditions, drug therapy or surgery can treat only your symptoms and may even exacerbate the stress that your musculoskeletal system is under, increasing the likelihood that your pain will return. Osteopathic manipulative therapy addresses the root cause of your condition and supports you in total-body healing.
Osteopathic manipulation is a hands-on technique that involves an osteopathic physician, or DO, stretching, resisting and placing gentle pressure on your joints and muscles. We perform a full range of different forms of osteopathic manipulations, including cranial osteopathy and joint mobilization. This is a noninvasive and effective way to relieve pain, improve mobility and promote healing for the following conditions:
- Muscle pain & strain
- Back pain
- Neck pain
- Sinus disorders
- Carpal tunnel syndrome
- Menstrual pain
At Physicians Health & Wellness, we use osteopathic manipulation during our routine exams because it helps us treat and diagnose the conditions above and more—to help you meet your health and wellness potential.
